Keeping in touch

We hope you've had a great time at York. If you want to keep in touch, there are two ways to do this:

  1. You can be a volunteer ambassador at your home university. Tell your fellow students about the brilliant University, amazing city and your experience here in the UK. Contact us ( for more information.
  2. Please remember that once you've completed your studies with us, you are now a University of York alum and automatically a member of York for Life


All taught visiting students will receive an academic transcript on completion of their studies in York. Students who have questions about how their grades from York will be converted should speak to their home university.

Transcripts are produced when all of your marks are entered onto the University's system. A copy of the final transcript will be emailed to your home institution. In addition, a copy will be emailed to your home address. Transcripts are provided through Global Opportunities, please do not use the Gradintel system.

If you need your transcript sooner because your graduation from your home university depends on it, please let us know in advance.

If you require an interim or unofficial transcript, please take a screen shot of your grades from your student account, and either print this off and take to the Student Hub for validation or email them at

It can take up to four weeks from the date that your marks have been registered on the system for a transcript to be mailed. If you have not received a transcript within this four week period contact us at
